I feel I am slipping down to a 4th or 5th on the list! I almost cleaned a few things off mine, but after seeing some of the other benches I don't feel so bad about the clutter.

good god, i need a xanax after looking at these benches. seiously my heart started racing in a few of the pictures. MY bench can get messy after a big project (engine swap or something) but I always make it a point to put everything away when done.

Learned this by using my uncles shop before i had one, deal was it always had to be cleaner than when i got there. I have a few smaller drawers for leftover misc stuff, but only stuf i am fairly certain i will use in the near future. Been getting better about tossing things now

I am a more organized guy when it comes to the repair shop Instead of expanding out horizontal I go vertical all the way from floor to ceiling. My goal was to have a high percent of the parts I would need to get er in and out of the shop. But take notice i got two cans of Mechanic in a bottle right there on my main bench. I use newspapers to keep a clean surface replacing them as needed.

Ed....Dude...thats a mess....I'm Impressed...
Get a few pieces of masonite to use for the countertops of your work areas..
It holds up really good to grease and solvents...they last for years...

This my litle cleaning station to get grease off things. It is a simple plastic tub lined with newspaper and a container of 2 stroke gas mix in the bottom. I never found anything better/cheaper than 2 stroke mix. I got the cardboard sides on it so when I blow with compressor I don't get it everywhere. I take out the newspapers and get new carboard sides about every month and put in new ones. I got a plastic cleaning station with pump from Harbor Freight but no go.....still in box to go on sale soon.

Ed...... I see in this pic why you've had sooo many problems in the past trying to clean carbs......





I see the most sorriest of SORRY carb cleaners on the market, That Gumout crap is nothing but mineral spirits in a freak'n spray can...... I learned after a 48 mile trip to town, 24 round trip to get a can (walmart was out of Super Tech brand) and a turn-a-round 24 to take that CRAP back and find something that would do the job......

Sorry...... I tend to loose it when I see a can and remember that day I lost time and gas......


Oh...... Nice look'n messy work area !!!
